Circle Delight

Heading 1

-Objective:

Heading 1

To most quickly pass a ball around a circle to the start of the circle.

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Manipulative Send

    • Throw​

  • Manipulative Receive

    • Catch

-Equipment List:

  • Up to one ball per player

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Players stand in a circle with an even number of players--every second player is on the same team.

  • One player from each team (standing beside each other) each hold a different coloured ball.

-Instructions:

  • On the signal to start, the player on the right tosses the ball to a the next teammate clocking counter-clockwise, while the other team tosses the ball to the next teammate in a clockwise direction.

  • The team that does it the quickest is the winner.

  • Using all of the same coloured balls add one, then two, then... more balls, and see which team can do it the fastest. If a ball is dropped it must be picked up and thrown--the leaders' balls cannot pass a ball that is on the floor.
